there are about 6000 edable plants and then hundreds of thousands of things made from them. I think vegans are sorted for a while.

I think i am surviving pretty well, i am hardly withering away wink Whether you are vegan or not, your diet sounds horribly monotonic and limited. Just today there was news about a guy who died of malnutrition eating just crap foods all the time:

I dont mean your diet is anywhere near as horrible as the one mentioned, not that i even know what your diet really is like, but variety is still something to strive for. Of course i rather see people aiming for a varied and balanced vegan diet wink

It would probably be better and more beneficial for you to post a question about what to eat to vegan message boards, i think the quality of replies would probably be better. Here you will get called a cock, and thats not vegan.

For example, try this board:

http://www.veganfitness.net/ and its "new vegan" section. Or just put vegan forums on google and enjoy smile

Ive been vegan for over 3 years and to be honest Im go through phases of not being arsed to cook. But the food can be just as easy satisfying and tasty as some of the junk I eat when I wasnt vegan.

Active Distro does some real cheap recipe books which I cant recommend enough.....

I'm not a veggie, but my dad, stepmum, sister and ex-gf all are so I've been effectively a vegitarian for large periods of my life.

The trick to surviving healthily on a veggie diet is to cook for yourself. To get regular balanced meals you really have to make them yourself.

My favourite

Fry some veg (onions, peppers, mushrooms), chillis and garlic

When partially fried, throw in sesame seeds and lots of powdered cumin

A few minutes later, throw in fresh or tinned tomatoes and tomato puree

Then add red kidney beans and sweetcorn

Add water and leave to boil down gently

Takes an hour or two, but this makes a genius vegan chilli that can feed you for a week. Barbeque sauce improves the flavour, and so can random other spices and herbs. Experimenting is the fun part )

dude, i dont think you can die from eating poultry sick with bird flu, isnt it only if you come into contact with it shortly after its died and like start rubbing it on your face or something, i mean surely you cant get it from eating water pumped bits of chicken?!

Mostly vegetarian.

Can't see why anyone would want to eat chicken, doesn't it taste a bit like quorn? smile

Veggie or not you should cook your own food, its cheaper and better and once you get into the swing of things it makes you feel great.

Agree with you Jeff. I particularly like the opportunity it gives me to be a smug bastard.

Smug bastard alert.....

last night I cooked a curry with mustard seeds, ground coriander, tumeric, home-made mixed nut paste, tomatoes, baby sweetcorn & peas. And fucking lovely it was, too. 8)

The concept of cooking vegetarian curry with chickpeas frankly baffles me.

If you're vegetarian, just buy lentils. They're easy to cook and pretty much go with most things. I usually throw them in with some pasta and some veg like tomatoes, onions, mushrooms etc and then a whole bunch of "Italian" herbs and then it tastes good. And filling, which is sometimes a rare experience for new vegetarians.

yes, but chickpeas are nice, so why not put them in curry? that's like saying "the concept of having mashed swedes baffles me, just use potatoes" or for the meat eaters among you "the concept of having venison goulash baffles me, just use beef."
